  • Get the plates out and add the potato cakes along with the rocket, lemon and tomatoes. Butter the potato cakes or toast.
  • Add the eggs when you can feel the heat (by hovering your hand over the frying pan). No butter or oil is needed. Move the spatula around until scrambled together. It should take less than a minute to cook. Don’t overcook them, as you want them nice and creamy.

Serving Suggestions

Here are some delightful serving suggestions to perfectly complement your scrambled eggs and smoked salmon:

  • A dollop of sour cream: The tanginess of sour cream beautifully balances the richness of the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
  • A sprinkle of fresh chives: Chives add a subtle hint of onion flavour, enhancing the overall taste. Plus, they add a pop of colour!
  • Avocado slices will provide a creamy texture and a dose of healthy fats. Its mild flavoUr complements the stronger flavours of the salmon and eggs.
  • Capers: Their briny, salty flavour works wonders with smoked salmon, providing an interesting contrast to the milder eggs and potatoes.

Remember, the beauty of this dish is its versatility. Mix and match these serving suggestions to create your perfect breakfast bite! Enjoy your scrambled eggs and smoked salmon in your own delicious way.
